# Excel 2010 :: Formatting Minutes And Seconds?

Apr 17, 2013

I have a sheet where staff enter the time it takes to do a task. I'm using a custom format of [mm]:ss. However, I enter (for instance) 5 into the cell, the value becomes 7200:00. I finally figured out that this is because that is the number of minutes in 5 days. However, I don't want staff to have to enter 00:05:00 to indicate they worked for 5 minutes. I would rather them be able to enter something like 5:30 (or something along those lines) to indicate this took 5 minutes and 30 seconds.

## Degrees Minutes Seconds Formatting

Nov 14, 2009

How do I custom format a cell to display degrees minutes seconds. I now there is a way. I found in on the web once but can not find it again. The formating from cpearson does not work the way i want.

For example if in cell a1 I input 50.2536, I want to to format the cell as 50° 25' 36". opefully this can be applished without any formulas. Either soem code or formating would be great. The last time I found it I thought it was something like ###° ??'/??" but that did not work. Thanks in advance. The reason I need it, is to use the convert_decimal function I found on the microsoft website.

## Hours:minutes:seconds Convert To Seconds

Jul 13, 2006

I am trying to convert a number of "hours" "minutes" and "seconds", to give me a result in seconds only, in order that I may then financially cost the amount of time spent on a task. (A time and motion costing exercise)

Represents 1119hours:48minutes:36seconds spent on a task.

I can manually convert this to 4031286 seconds, but it just takes too much time !!!(sorry!)

## Calc Minutes And Seconds Difference

May 27, 2006

Spreadsheet tracks race times for cross country races and needs to be able to
calculate improvement time in mm:ss (or zero if less than previous race).

Also,it would be nice to be able to enter times without using colons or have
to reference the field as h:mm:ss. The race result will always be mm:ss and
the last two digits will always be seconds, the result will never be more
than 60 minutes so hours are a real bother.

A1 (8:52, m:ss) - A2 (8:40, mm:ss) should = 0.12 (12 seconds)

Presently I am using the following: =TEXT(A2-A1,"h:mm:ss"), I only want to
display m:ss, hours are meanlingless
